‘They’re only going to be in school for 2 more terms. Send them the new bloke Nixon, he can cut his teeth on 7.Y.Y. down in I.I.B…it’s out of the way – if they eat him or burn him alive we can forget about him…. (Mr Basford, Head of Maths, deposed star of the school’s Gilbert and Sullivan productions)
Hilarious and irreverent, poignant and gritty, Teechers is John Godber’s brilliant take on life at a modern Comprehensive, published just before he went on to write for TV’s classic Grange Hill. Through their hilarious end-of-term play, three Year 11s exuberantly sketch the new drama teacher’s (very slow) progress through two terms of unruly classes, cynical colleagues, unfathomable timetables and obstructive caretakers at a tough inner city comprehensive known as Colditz at the local County Hall.
